It may be the most obvious development in streaming television history, but Netflix’s chaotic megahit, Squid Game, will indeed return for season 2, confirmed officially by writer/director Hwang Dong-hyuk in an interview with the AP.
While Hwang Dong-hyuk has spoken about potential ideas for Squid Game season 2, this is the first time he’s actually said that it was definitely happening. Here’s the translation of what he said in the AP interview, which you can watch below:
“So there’s been so much pressure, so much demand and so much love for a second season. So I almost feel like you leave us no choice! But I will say there will indeed be a second season. It’s in my head right now. I’m in the planning process currently. But I do think it’s too early to say when and how that’s going to happen. So I will promise you this…(in English) Gi-Hun will come back, and he will do something for the world.”
Gi-Hun was last seen looking like Conan O’Brein with his bright red hair and prepared to go after the organization behind the Squid Game.
The series took the world by storm when it arrived on Netflix, smashing streaming records and cementing itself in pop culture.
